Suspension, delay, loss, opposition, obstacles, hindrances, postponements,  jealousy, envy, greed, attachment to material items and objects.

The 4 of Pentacles indicates one who is too attached to the materialistic realms. This person enjoys power and always wants to be in charge. They will put in extra effort towards attaining money, financial or material gain.

The Four of Pentacles signifies a miserly tendency and reveals the negative attitude in holding onto what one has at the expense of embracing anything new and fresh.

Miserliness can be extended to the realm of emotions. One’s attitude towards money as a valuable commodity can be linked to one’s feelings about oneself and others as valuable and worthwhile. Therefore, stinginess with money is associated with lack of emotional generosity. It may also indicate as much fear of losing emotionally as there is of losing financially. The reversed 4 of Pentacles tells of someone becoming a miser. It also tells of this energy stifling the financial flow.

The reversed Four of Pentacles indicates a reluctance to give up anything or to share fairly. This can apply to a relationship or career, or any other aspect of life. A fear of failure and loss is most likely the root cause of this attitude, and needs to be addressed.

The IV of Pentacles reversed may indicate that others may be jealous of your wealth or social standing, and are plotting to create obstacles for you.

Reversed, the 4 of Pentacles indicates that you will enjoy a financially rewarding period, but in order to gain this material wealth, you may have to experience a loss of some sort.

A form of inheritance may be gained through the death of a relative or close friend when the 4 of Pentacles appears reversed. Alternatively, it may be suggesting the end of a relationship or partnership which will result in a ‘pay-out’ of sorts. 

Reversed, the Four of Pentacles may be suggesting the end of a job, occupation or career path. You may receive a retrenchment payout at this time. You will lose your job security, but will gain monetarily in the short term.

The 4 of Pentacles reversed may be indicating that a person is acting in a greedy and stingy manner. 

This person may be cutting themselves off from the world at large.

The reversed IV of Pentacles tells of a need to establish new plans so that you are prepared when upsets and/or delays take place. Opposition may delay future plans. It would be advisable to have an alternative plan or option ready just in case.

Money spent unwisely is implied by the reversed Four of Pentacles. It may also imply irresponsible decision-making, false economy, greed and the squandering of resources. You are to keep a check on this to your own financial stability and security.
